Its time to the start the Leh – Ladakh season 2016 – 17 and in this article today, I will be sharing the Leh – Ladakh Taxi Rates 2016 – 17 of leh taxi union 🙂 🙂 … Well, unexpectedly, this year the prices are of Leh – Ladakh taxis have not been hiked and there is a pending decision just to decide on the prices of Tempo Traveller hike. Finally, some sense has prevailed in Leh – Ladakh taxi union and with this move of not hiking the taxi prices in season 2016-17, the rocket high prices will have control to some extent 🙂 🙂 … I expected around 8-10% but the news is a pleasant surprise. You might know that, few of year ago the taxi union has separated the rates on the basis of model and make of the taxis. There are XUVs too available as taxi now, which falls in the category of Innova and Xylo… The taxi grouping along with price hikes for this year, which is same as last year, are as follow with an exception of Xylo moving to Category B:-
- XUV, Innova and Aria (highest price tag) – 0% Hike in Charges
- Xylo, Scorpio, Tavera, Sumo Grande, Qualis, Safari, etc.. (middle price tag) – 0% Hike in Charges
- Eeco, Omni Van, Winger, Old Sumo, Bolero, etc.. (lowest price tag) – 0% Hike in Charges
- Tempo Traveller / Wingers – To be decided
Below you can find the entire rate list of leh taxi union rates for 2016 – 17 for sightseeing purposes within Ladakh, towards Manali and towards Srinagar for this current year which is same as that of last year 2015 – 16.
